In 2019 the venue of the first 2 days for “Amazing Vienna” will be Grand Hotel Wien*****. Since 1870 the Grand Hotel Wien has been famous the world over for exquisite hospitality and refined luxury. Long a hub for Viennese high society and discerning international guests, the Grand Hotel Wien offers a superb range of luxury rooms and suites, unrivaled gourmet dining and world leading customer service.

OF THE FESTIVAL
On the third day of the festival we are moving to the Hofburg Imperial Palace, which is the former principal imperial palace of the Habsburg dynasty rulers and today serves as the official residence and workplace of the President of Austria and Europe's first address for balls, banquets and congresses. The grand Festival Hall of Hofburg with its impressive ceiling frescos, crystal chandeliers and simply magical atmosphere will open doors for the 2019 WDC World Championship - Professional Ballroom Showdance, Hofburg VIP Showcases and the finals of Hofburg Imperial Cups.
HOFBURG IMPERIAL CUP
New fabulous event is added to the program of "Amazing Vienna" - Imperial Hofburg Cup. It will be held in 2 programs - Latin and Ballroom. This competition will be similar to the regular Scholarship, where all 5 dances of the programme should be performed. The differences from the Scholarship are: all age groups will compete together, it is not necessary to register the corresponding Single Dances while dancing the Imperial Hofburg Cup. The qualifying rounds of the Cup will be held in Grand Hotel Wien on Friday and Saturday, depending on the schedule, and the finals will be held at the Imperial Hofburg Palace during the 2019 WDC World Championship - Professional Ballroom Showdance.
